The unmistakable sight of a Virgin balloon in flight has once again been spotted on television and this time it was floating over Lancashire on BBC 2’s Oz & Hugh Raise the Bar.
The series follows wine expert Oz Clark and comic actor Hugh Dennis as they toured the UK to find the finest independently produced beers, wines and spirits.
One of our hot air balloons appears in the distance high above the Lancashire countryside as the pair sample some wine at the Mount Pleasant Vineyard, at Bolton-le-Sands in Carnforth.
This was in the third episode of the series which was on over Christmas and New Year and can be viewed here on the BBC’s iPlayer
. Look out for our balloon around 19 minutes and 11 seconds into the show as it drifts over the vineyard on a hill near Morecambe Bay.
Our hot air balloon in Lancashire is captained by highly-experienced local pilot John Fenton
and launches from sites including Burton in Lonsdale, Crook O Lune near Lancaster, Kirkby Lonsdale and Wray. Click here to go ballooning in Lancashire
